That was Corvus Corax. If you got any heathen noisemakers, bring them along. Don't feel that you need to play them well. Who really does anyway?

Well, I got to admit I recognized it from reading Robert E. Howard's biography ("Dark Valley Destiny" I believe it was called.) Somehow I have missed reading his stories-- some day I should rectify that deficiency. (I think that during my prime fantasy reading time they were out of print.)
The biography was really interesting-- apparently he wrote a lot of books during his short life. Also, he and H.P. Lovecraft had quite a debate about fascism in their correspondence-- Lovecraft for and Howard against. It still seems rather weird to me that the creator of Conan committed suicide because he couldn't face life without his mother-- then again, it has been speculated that Conan was more based on his father then REH.
I'm still curious about who that band in the video was.

Only when it's done in the valley.
